How to connect Mi Band 5 to Strava?

Connect Mi Band 5 to Strava:

While there are no options to connect your Mi Band 5 to Strava directly from the Mi Fit app, you can easily do it with the Amazfit app, which is now known as Zepp.

Here are the steps to successfully connect the Mi Band 5 to Strava -

Step 1 - Install the Zepp app from the Play Store.

2. Login to the Zepp app using the same email and password that you used for Mi Fit.

The band may update to sync all the data from the MiFit app to Zepp.

2. In the Zepp app, tap on the Profile tab.

3. After clicking on Profile, you’ll see a list of options. Tap on the “Add accounts” option.

4. After tapping on "Add accounts", you will see a list of different accounts to connect. Here, you need to tap on the “Strava” option.

5. At the bottom, you will see an option to authorize Strava to connect to Zepp. Click on the Strava option for authorization.

6. Now login to your Strava account with your email and password. If you don’t have an account with Strava, you can create a new one by clicking on Sign Up at the top-right of the Strava login screen.

If you forgot your password, you can reset it by clicking on “Forgot your password?” on the Strava login screen.

7. If you’re connecting from Zepp to Strava for the first time, an authorization screen will appear. Click on “Authorize”.

After a successful authorization of the Zepp app to Strava, all your activity like running, cycling etc. will start to appear on Strava after proper syncing of the Mi Band 5 with the Mi Fit app. 

I've also tested using the old Amazfit app and after the first setup, it did not need to sync again and again with the Mi Fit app, data started to appear on Amazfit instantly after connecting it with the Mi Band.

Thank you for the article and instructions. In Zepp aap, under profiles and settings, I don't see any option for Strava or for any other account.

After going to Profile, you have to click on "Add accounts". You'll find the Strava option there.

The only account that can be added via "Add accounts" for me is Google Fit, Strava is missing, any ideas why?

I just checked, the Strava option is available in the Zepp app after going to Profile, then "Add accounts". You might be looking at Zepp Life. Only the Google Fit option appears on the Mi Fit app (now Zepp Life). But on Zepp, the Strava option is present.
